Title: MODULAR X-RAY DIAGNOSTIC APPLIANCE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a modular X-ray diagnostic appliance, comprising a base support (1) as the first module, a least one support for the base support (1) as the second module, at least one component of an X-ray imaging device as the third module, a bearing device (33) for an object to be examined as the fourth module, and a longitudinal carriage (20) as the fifth module, said carriage being disposed above the base support (1) and the component being mounted thereon. The base support is provided with bearing device coupling elements (31, 32) for coupling the bearing device (33) thereto, with support coupling elements (6) for coupling the support and with component coupling elements for coupling the component. Said component coupling elements comprise a fixed and/or floating bearing (22, 23) disposed on the base support (1) that is/are connected to the longitudinal carriage (20). The invention further relates to a method for producing different series of X-ray diagnostic appliances which is characterized in that the same modular base supports (1) and the same modular bearing device (33) can be used for all series.
